And if you're really planning on track days, go for a M3.
Actually many people buy cars based on 0-60 time. ask any american muscle car owner. my 0-60 question was merely out of curiosity. The overall driving dynamic is the most important to me. Maybe I am a tool and take offense to the assumption that being a tool is bad. Doesn't driving a BMW automatically make one a tool? no track days for me, at least not in a boat but perhaps some spirited canyon runs are in order with the right car.
